They mentioned several changes to the way experience in groups is earned at SOE Live, but if you go through the update notes for beta the experience changes haven't been done yet.  Are they still planning to have that in by the 13th, or are they planning to do the experience changes in a GU a few months after the expansion launch?  Just wondering if we'll be levelling up to lvl95 under the old rules, or the announced new rules.

The new xp changes are already live on beta, so yes they are comming with the expansion.

However, due to the increadibly low XP from the quests and overland mobs in the X-pak, these changes will not actually change how you go about leveling up to 95.  We'll all setill be PL'ing in old world zones, just like before.

Oh for sure, I've already figured out the most rapid path to 95, and it has nothing to do with CoE content.

Actually, they boosted quest XP on the beta server to curb that a little bit.  But you won't level up as before.  Why?  Because if you mentor down....you don't get the encounter bonus.  This will make tearing up seb and Chelsith counter intuitive for anyone who isn't of that level already.  You do get the same xp as soloing in a full group of six Player Characters though, so Skyshrine contested will be overcamped and the best xp available most likely.
